On February 13th at 6 p.m., Mercy Health will host their annual Mardi Gras and All that Jazz celebration at the Carson Center in Paducah. The event is a fundraiser for the Mercy Health Foundation at Lourdes, with all proceeds going towards improving and upgrading the facility and its services.
Guests can expect to indulge in Cajun food and drinks from some of the area’s most popular restaurants, listen to live music, and enjoy several entertainers who will get partygoers ready to march and dance. To top it off, there will be free masks and beads available so guests can celebrate Fat Tuesday style.
Past events have raised over $1 million for the hospital since its inception in 2022, including funding for new pediatric rooms, an epilepsy monitoring unit, 3D breast cancer technology, and a pediatric intubation device for the emergency room. This year’s event aims to raise even more money to continue supporting Mercy Health — Lourdes Hospital’s mission of providing quality healthcare to those in need.
Individual tickets are $150 at the door or can be purchased by calling 270-415-3759. For more information about the event or to purchase tickets online, visit Mercy Health’s Facebook page.
